Orioles Add Four Players To The Roster

Brandon Fahey, Luis Hernandez, Fernando Cabrera, and Gustavo Molina will all be making late-season appearances with the Orioles.

The Orioles today announced that they have added four players to their roster with the conclusion of the minor league season. Those players will join the team for the Orioles' game at Tampa Bay tonight.

SS Luis Hernandez and INF Brandon Fahey were each recalled for their second stint with the Orioles this season. Hernandez appeared in 13 games for the Orioles, batting .333 (12-36). He spent most of the season at AA Bowie, hitting .242 (88-364) in 92 games. Fahey batted .231 (9-39) in 23 games for the Birds. He hit .236 (81-343) with 2 home runs and 28 RBI in 91 games for AAA Norfolk.

The Orioles also selected RHP Fernando Cabrera from Norfolk and recalled CA Gustavo Molina from Bowie. Cabrera began the season with the Cleveland Indians and went 1-2 with a 5.61 ERA (33.2IP, 21ER) in 24 games before being released on August 9. He was signed by the Orioles on August 21 and made 3 relief appearances at Norfolk. Molina was claimed off waivers from the Chicago White Sox on July 30. He batted .364 (28-77) in 22 games for the Baysox and went 1-for-18 in 10 games for the White Sox earlier this season.

To make room for Cabrera on the 40-man roster, RHP Chris Ray was transferred to the 60-day disabled list.

The Orioles also announced that Bowie coach Moe Hill will be added to the coaching staff when the team returns home on Thursday. Hill completed his 5th season in the organization and his 2nd with the Baysox.
